Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz has officially thrown her hat into the ring in the governor's race. She sent out an email to supporters earlier this evening. The campaign is using her standard campaign website address: www.allysonschwartz.com this url has been used for her congressional campaigns as well.
There are some interesting graphics. I count at least four shades of blue. The splash page has a faint image from the state flag, at an angle, in the background. The horses and the eagle's head are the most visible items from the flag. There is a blue state icon with a red bar to the right of it, with a lighter blue ribbon across it. Her name, "for governor" with the campaign URL is blazoned across the blue state image. There is a large white star at the end of her first name. The only noticeable item on the screen that is not red, white, or blue, is a slender edge of yellow on her shirt.
It's a well-designed page and worth a look.
This is the text of the email sent out earllier:
